You must make sure the mist is not to close to the igniter . If it is it wont be misty enough to ignite. And make sure its in the path of the mist. If its new return it to the store.

LR-350 keeps on turning off


Check the wiring for the fan and the temperature sensor. If the fan isn't running/broken the unit will not start or ignite. Try moving the fan blades with the unit unplugged. If they don't move easily or are ceased the fan may need replacing or lubricating. The heat in these units dries out the fan bearings over time.

I have a used B115. I put kerosene in it. Plug it in, it will run about 5 sec then shut off, kicking out the reset button. Push in the reset and it runs for a shorter time and cuts off again. Have checked...


Remove the top of the heater. Watch out for the fan and turn the heater on. Use a flashlight to look for fuel spraying from the nozzle. If it isn't, check the nozzle for blockage and the fuel filter. If fuel is spraying, make sure the igniter is working. The reset kick out because the flame sensor isn't detecting any flame or is dirty.

Igniter lites up fan kicks on and within 5 sec shuts off


Dustin, The ignitor only glows for 5 seconds, just long enough to ignite the fuel. The heater is shutting down because the photocell does not see the correct flame color.
Since you say "comes on for 5 seconds", I can only assume that there is a flame. You do not specify a lack of flame. I am also assuming that you have had the heater running this heater season and the problem just started.

YOU must find out if the problem is fuel delivery related or electronics related. Start by checking the pump pressure.

most parts for kero heaters are interchangable. go to desatech dot com for parts. check for a reset button for your heater. if no reset, does the fan run? your unit can use one of two ignition parts. a spark generator with a spark plug or a hot surface igniter. the unit uses a cad cell flame detector. you might need to replace this.
